Centering Anti-Racism and Equity in your Leadership Practice

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session is designed for participants who hold a formal or informal leadership role in their organization and want to make their anti-racist beliefs a more integral part of their daily practice. In this session, participants will learn about the power of storytelling to define their mission and identity as an anti-racist leader. Presenters will guide participants through a storytelling protocol that will help leaders develop their anti-racist mission statement and identify actions to live their mission. Participants will leave the session with structures to lead a storytelling process within their organization and clearly defined next steps towards their anti-racist work.

Objectives: Use storytelling to define your mission/identity as an anti-racist leader; make plans to live this identity through action.
